I have a twofold question. After sitting on my patio tonight, watching the moths bump against the outdoor lights, I began to wonder. I’ve wondered this many times before, but I decided to actually see if there are any facts on this:
Why do moths fly repeatedly against a light source, and;
If they are so attracted to light, on a moonlit night, why don’t you see any trying to fly towards the moon?
In any case, the bats around our place probably think that artificial lights are the best invention ever .
